CFP: Queensland Greek History Conference

Seen on Classicists (please send any responses to the folks mentioned in the quoted text, not to rogueclassicism!):

QUEENSLAND GREEK HISTORY CONFERENCE

Brisbane, 22-23 October 2010

CALL FOR PAPERS

The Inaugural Queensland Greek History Conference will be taking place at The University of Queensland on 22 and 23 October 2010. The two keynote speakers will be Professor Vincent Gabrielsen (The University of Copenhagen) and Professor Margaret Miller (The University of Sydney). The keynote-speaker session will take place on Friday afternoon and will be followed by a formal reception for invited diplomats and politicians, members of the University’s executive, VIPs from the Greek community, conference delegates and members of the general public. The following day will consist of 10 papers of 20 minutes. The conference will showcase the diversity of research which is being undertaken on Greek history, language and culture from ancient to modern times at universities in Queensland and northern New South Wales. In addition it will help consolidate ties between our institutions and researchers, on the one hand, and those outside of the university sector who have a stake in Greek history, culture and language on the other. The theme of the inaugural conference is cultural history and one of its financial sponsors is The University of Queensland Cultural History Project. There are still a handful of speaking spots for the 23rd. Offers of papers on Greek cultural history (broadly defined) should be sent directly to the conference’s convenor, Dr David Pritchard (The University of Queensland).
